Brothers Rizwan and Muazzam Mujahid Ali Khan are getting on with the family business, as did their uncle, the late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. The family has been singing and performing qawwali—the music of Islamic mystics—for 500 years. A Better Destiny, which follows the brothers' modernist collaboration with Temple of Sound and the album People's Colony No. 1, is Rizwan and Muazzam's return to traditional qawwali. It represents several genres of Urdu poetry, and though the music is, like Gnawa music, meant to induce a trance state, there's a good deal of musical and vocal nuance from track to track. Rizwan and Muazzam have become dynamic and skilled qawwali singers, and their varied approaches to "Ay Sarwey Naz Neney Mun," "Dil Wali Cal Karni," and "Nara Ya Farid" reveal the growing subtlety of their artistry.—PVV
